Jon Stewart had a little fun at Top Chef’s expense last night on The Daily Show in a hilarious segment comparing the sequestration of Congress to being told by Padma Lakshmi to “pack your knives and go.”

“There are worse penalties for f--king up on Top Chef than there are in Congress,” according to Stewart. “At least there you gotta pack your knives and go!”
